Mike Peter Gallardo was sentenced to death for the 2005 murder of 20-year-old college student Rudy Padilla. On the early afternoon of December 9, 2005, Gallardo called the Padilla residence but no one answered the phone. Gallardo assumed there was no one at the residence and broke the arcadia door with a lawn chair. At some point shortly after entering the residence, Rudy confronted Gallardo and a struggle ensued. Rudy’s father came home from work around 3:00 p.m. and found Rudy shot to death and with electrical cords bound on his feet, hands, and neck. Phone records proved the phone call to the Padilla residence on that day came from Gallardo’s cell phone. Gallardo’s DNA was found on blood on the lawn chair used to break the arcadia door and also on a cigarette butt found near the side gate of the residence. He was convicted of first-degree murder and first-degree burglary and kidnapping.
